    Comments about The Body Shop Shea Body Butter:

    I put this on after my shower. My layer of sunscreen goes on so much more easily over Shea Body Butter. It is not sticky, but keeps my skin moisturized all day or all night long. I like the Argan Oil and Olive Oil Body Butters, too, although the olive oil one has a more watery texture. I do not like to smell like fruit, so I have not tried the other Body Butter scents. This product is not inexpensive, so I wait to buy it until it is on sale.

                    If they still made the Brazil Nut I'd give 5 stars. This is a very close second. Great all over lotion with hydration that lasts.

                          What does the Shea Body Butter smell like? Is it a strong scent that lasts throughout the day, or is it a milder scent that disappears after you rub it in?

                            Thank you for contacting The Body Shop. Shea Body Butter is our mildest scent. It has a very subtle, very neutral nut scent.

                            A:

                            The Body Shop does not claim that this product is hypoallergenic. The Body Shop products do not list an expiry date on the packaging. Typically, the shelf life for all new products that are unopened is three years. After opening, we recommend that customers finish using the product within 12 months. You will also notice that there is an 'Open Jar' symbol on the labels of most of The Body Shop products. The symbol looks like an opened lid with a number and the letter "M" on it. The number symbol indicates the number of months after the product has first been opened by the consumer that it will remain in a suitable condition for use. This is often referred to as the "period after opening". The Body Shop has included this symbol on labels to act as a reminder to consumers that cosmetic products should not continue to be used for excessively long periods, once they have been opened and used.
